The 25th anniversary edition of the original groundbreaking chronicle of near-death experiences.
Originally published twenty-five years ago, The Vestibule is the earliest known collection of first-person accounts confirming that this life is but one phase of our existence. Today, its message resonates even more powerfully. These remarkable stories are told by men and women who were pronounced dead, only to return to their bodies and resume living with a new respect for the beauty of the eternal spirit in all of us. Each of these richly detailed narratives describes intense feelings of peace and joy at the time of death, and their remarkable similarities build an overwhelming case that life is a continuum—and that the spirit lives on.

The 25th Anniversary Edition of the Original Groundbreaking Chronicle of Near-Death Experiences THE VESTIBULE Jess E. Weiss In 1972, three years before Raymond Moody's Life after Life and twenty years before Betty J. Eadie's Embraced by the Light, Jess E. Weiss edited and wrote the Groundbreaking book that answered the age-old question, "What happens when we die?" Now Pocket Books will publish the 25th Anniversary Edition of Weiss's THE VESTIBULE (a Pocket Books Trade Paperback). THE VESTIBULE was one of the first books to broach the subject of life after death and record experiences of those who died and then returned. It is a collection of remarkable stories told by men and women who were pronounced dead, only to return to their bodies and resume living. Their reports of journeying to death are so vivid, so full of joy and peace, and so startlingly alike that they give overwhelming evidence for the survival of the spirit after life. "The purpose and motive of THE VESTIBULE is to establish with more certainty that there is an afterlife," wrote Jess Weiss, "thereby alleviating fully or to a degree the sting of death." Since publication, THE VESTIBULE has been used extensively in hospices for the terminally ill for its comforting and healing message. Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, The prominent physician and bestselling author of On Death and Dying, used Weiss's book in her workshops to reassure dying patients and their families, and thousands of people around the world found solace in the accounts in Weiss's book. "I cannot express on paper the feelings I felt while reading your book," wrote one grateful reader. "Your book showed me that death is not frightening for the ill person. He welcomes it, after all that he has been through. For me, the subject of death no longer makes me tremble." Forever timely, THE VESTIBULE has been, is, and will continue to be a Spiritual guidepost for every person, leading to a greater understanding of life and Death . and the afterlife.
